Chapter Summary

Child labor may be linked to criminal activities. This is particularly the case with child pornography, prostitution and the use of children in the drug trade. The use of child labor in these activities involves the type of abuse that understandably led to the inclusion of sexual and criminal exploitation of children as one of the worst forms of child labor. In examining sexual and criminal exploitation and trafficking of children, one can see both the rationale for connecting child labor with the broader human rights agenda and the controversial nature of such a link. The inclusion of sexual and criminal exploitation in C 182 has been criticized on the grounds that these are not child labor issues, but rather issues of international criminal law. International standards on trafficking are an essential part of eliminating the sexual and criminal exploitation of children.
